Dogs Helping Kids Learn to Read

SCHOOL-AGE KIDS

Reading to a dog helps children in many ways. Dogs help to create a safe, non-judgmental, experience, which studies show reduces anxiety, anger, and depression. At the same time, increased self-confidence and self-esteem create a sense of pride and motivation to read independently.  Kids LOVE reading to our dogs! This is a free program designed for school-age kids.

Monthly “Library Reads” start January 9. Join these wonderful Reading With Rover D.R.E.A.M.* teams at the following locations:

Langley Library – 2nd Wednesdays, starting January 9, 5-6:00pm

Freeland Library – 4th Wednesdays, starting January 23, 5-6:00pm

Reading with Rover™ is a therapy dog program serving the community of the Puget Sound. Reading with Rover is a registered 501(C)3 non profit organization.
